PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla.—Freshman Julien Brun and senior Johan de Beer will enter the final round of the 2012 John Hayt Collegiate Invitational atop the individual leaderboard after both Frogs continued their strong play in Round 2 Monday at Sawgrass Country Club.

TCU has climbed into fifth place in the individual standings with a two-day, 17-over-par total of 593. The squad still has a shot at the team title as it sits only five shots back of tournament host UCF, which leads the field at +12. The Frogs combined for a 5-over score of 293 Monday, which was only one stroke shy of the best round of the day recorded by both Arkansas and Georgia Southern.

Brun owns a one-stroke lead on the individual leaderboard at -5 after posting a 1-under score of 71 Monday, while de Beer, who carded an even-par 72, is close behind in a tie for second place with LSU’s San Yi at +4. Brun posted a pair of birdies against only one bogey on the back nine to gain the overall lead and is looking for his second tournament victory of the season. De Beer recorded an eagle on hole 11 after playing the first 10 holes 2-over par.

Joining the Frog leaders among the top-18 golfers is freshman Thomas Mantovanini, who is playing this week as an individual and does not count towards TCU’s team total. Mantovanini joined de Beer in playing even-par golf with a 72 in Round 2. Junior Daniel Jennevret shook off a tough opening round with a 1-over 73 Monday to climb into a tie for 54th place (+10), while fellow junior Pontus Gad rounded out the Frog scoring with a 5-over 77 and is tied for 79th (+16).

Freshman Sarosh Adi, who like Mantovanini is competing as an individual, fell into 82nd place (+18) after struggling with an 11-over 83 Monday, while sophomore Johnny Antle also shot 83 and is in 86th place (+24).

Competition at the John Hayt Collegiate Invitational wraps up Tuesday with the tournament’s final 18 holes. First groups are scheduled to tee off at 8:30 a.m. ET at Sawgrass Country Club.
